At just 19 years old, Alfie Templeman is a prodigious talent, set to explode. The multi-instrumentalist and producer recently crashed through 3 million monthly listeners on Spotify, sold out the O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire, and has a fast-growing fanbase thanks to big tracks such as ‘Everybody’s Gonna Love Somebody’, ‘Happiness In Liquid Form’ and ‘Things I Thought Were Mine’.

Alfie grew up in the small village of Carlton in Bedfordshire. It was a quiet place giving him time to focus on his obsession with music and learn to play an incredible 10 different instruments. Despite his young age, he has been honing his skills as a producer and musician for many years and is sure to get the giant festival tent at Halloween Town Festival rocking.

Halloween Town Festival launched last year and was an instant success. 15,000 guests attended to enjoy a mix of huge headline music acts with an incredible custom-built immersive Halloween experience. With Friday and Saturday headliners still to be announced, and now Alfie Templeman confirmed to support The Wombats on Sunday, this year is going to be even bigger.

Single Review: ‘Tell Me’ - Jay Moussa-Mann

by Ilana Hawdon The feeling of pure betrayal and heartbreak is perfectly captured in Jay Moussa-Mann’s latest single, ‘Tell Me’. Jay Moussa-Mann is the folk dream we have been waiting for. A favourite on BBC Introducing, Radio 6 and BBC Radio Tees, Jay ’s sound is easy on the ears but delightfully addictive. With a background in writing and film, she began her solo musical venture when she released her debut album, ‘Little Deaths’ in late-2019, and since then, Moussa-Mann has defined herself as an artist with unbelievable range and promise.    ‘Tell Me’ is completely timeless; with notes of Carole King and Joni Mitchell, Moussa-Mann creates a folk-inspired track which is simultaneously heart wrenching and strangely empowering. Beginning as a simple guitar tune, ‘Tell Me’ builds with layers of luscious strings and twinkling piano, tied together with Jay ’s vocal line which is equal parts melancholic and divine. The song feels unwaveringly intimate; the lyrics ask, ‘what was I worth?’

Single Review: 'So Deep' - Brianna Knight

 by Emily Jackson New York-based singer-songwriter Brianna Knight’s latest track, 'So Deep', is a declaration of love without any soppiness; it’s pure soul. With a voice like honey that oozes power and control at the mastery level of some of her biggest influences (Lauryn Hill and H.E.R.), Brianna’s vocals soar.  ‘So Deep’ is an intoxicating listen and in just under three minutes, Knight sells you a whole story about fun, lust-filled young love. The heavy funk bass line evokes nostalgia, making you want to get up and dance, whilst keeping things contemporary by being an upbeat tale of passion rather than your bog-standard ballad. Brianna’s sound blends 90’s R’n’B with a modern take on Soul; hearing just the first few notes is enough to wish that she could narrate your wildest nights and worst heartaches.   As Brianna sings “you’re addictive to me” - you stop and realise that you may just be addicted to her. Just before you think the single couldn’t get better, the first verse c
